Octopus Stock
  • 700g octopus(1-2 depending on size), water to cover the octopus, 1 large bay leaf, 3 garlic cloves, black pepper.
  • Put the ingredients in a sufuria, bring to a boil and simmer for an hour until the octopus is soft.
  • I set aside the octopus for another dish and then proceeded to make the rice with the left over octopus liquid, measured as per my rice quantity.

*The water measurement will depend on your octopus…so simply ensure that the octopus is immersed and covered with the water.

*Also i dint add any salt in my stock, however if you do, just remember to add little to none when making the rice.
